She Keeps Falling

empty bottles

empty eyes 

empty minds

empty cries 


maternal love with no grace

fun with nothing but haze

eyes deep blue 

fallen wings 

featherless in the air


no thoughts for humanity

no thoughts for blood

no thoughts for soul


yet more intoxication 




without a care


no intentions 

no point 

just physical love with no understanding 


one day healed 

but until then 

she keeps falling 




    WELCOME FRIEND ~ THANKS FOR SHARING A WELL WRITTEN POEM BUT WITH A PAINFUL CONTENT ! As you say poetry is cathartic and helps to heal painful memories and enable sus to forgive ~ but not forget. Thinking of you and your MOM' I agree with youir prognosis ~ only God can heal ~ only God can inspiren our writing, Thanks for caring ~ Yours BRIAN

    Very deep meaning, one I know well which you've expressed so vivid in this poem, very well done. Keep up the good work, you are very inspirational.

    This is an amazing write. I can relate to this piece. I felt the connection flowing when I read this. It is clear how your mother has hurt you and how she keeps making mistakes but doesn't care if she does. Stay with this and her.
